The New York Knicks built a 28-point lead and then held on to beat the Memphis Grizzlies 123-113 on Tuesday, Feb. 6, but Jalen Brunson’s ankle injury looms over the team with the trade deadline less than 24 hours away .
SNY’s Knicks insider Ian Begley reported immediately after the game that Brunson left Madison Square Garden under his spell.
“So far I’ve heard that Jalen Brunson has avoided a serious ankle injury. That’s the first read,” Begley said on SNY Sportnite with Nikki Lattarulo. “We saw him walk out of the locker room slowly, carefully, no limp, no crutches, no anything on his ankles. So that’s a good sign.”
Brunson strained his ankle on a drive against Grizzlies rookie GG Jackson with 5:31 to play with the Knicks’ 20-point lead cut in half 105-95.
